we enjoyed our visit to Leffert's pond. We did a bit of fishing (did not catch anything but we all enjoyed ourselves anyway) hiked the trails a little bit and because it was really hot and muggy, we took a dip in the lake. The water was clear and refreshing! We met a few people but it was a really... More

We went on a group nature hike here and saw plenty of wildflowers, birds, and even a few salamanders. It's a lovely place without many people. If you have a canoe or kayak, it would be a good place to spend an hour or two. Parking is easy to access and close to the water.

A nice walk around however as we approached the other side that ends up on the road the trail became a stream! Be ready to take off hiking shoes and wade through the water!

Headed here to see the moose. First and foremost, coming in from the east, don't let google maps bring you in over Elbow and Old Turnpike off of 100 unless you are in an ATV! Go all the way to Chittenden. The view was great and imagine on a pretty day, the walk around the pond would be spectacular. Very... More

a little hard to find--two lakes in one and a marsh. Bird variety just okay. Nice to see loons and kingfishers. Pretty but not spectacular. Free with about ten parking spots and a portapotty. A few Trails around lake. Only of interest to those staying nearby.

I find it is one of the best places to see osprey, moose, mergansers, turtles, blue heron and a lot of pretty plants with a view to boot.

Leffert's Pond is an amazing place to be on a nice day. From the main area you can launch a kayak or canoe on either Leffert's Pond as well as Chittenden Reservoir. There is an easy hiking trail that loops around Leffert's Pond that takes about an hour to complete and gives you some incredible views along the way. The... More
